Lynbrook's Simple Pleasures Closing: What Should Replace It?

As this upscale gift shop shuts down, tell us what you want to see open here.

The rooms inside Lynbrook's Simple Pleasures gift shop are looking pretty empty lately. Gone are most of the collectible dolls, ornate furniture, home decor, and other fine goods that once filled the Sunrise Highway store.

Most of the items flew off the shelves during the holiday shopping season, when the store first began to advertise "50 percent off everything." The sale is still going on, according to signage posted in the shop's windows, as the owner looks to clear out what little merchandise does remain. But the biggest item up for sale is the building itself.

The property, located at 225 Sunrise Highway, is being listed by Century 21 Adams Real Estate for $485,000. Taxes are $23,648.

According to the listing, the building, which was constructed in 1947, sits on a lot that measures 116 x 75 ft., and the interior is 5,269 sq. ft. The property is equipped with central air conditioning, a loading dock and five parking spaces.

The building is described as being "perfect for commercial, retail, laundry [and] showrooms," and the listing also indicates that the owner is "motivated to sell." 

Tell us: Are you sad to hear Simple Pleasures is closing? What will miss about the store, and what would you like to see it replaced by once the property is sold? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

Note: Simple Pleasures is now open Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Chances are this block will become abandonded as the Earle ave block of Sunrise hwy too. Taxes are just too, too high? Unless school pay and perks as well as police is checked this will continue on LI, particularly with the mass LI exodus, which will further as more houses are being sold by m t nesters, however, taxes leaving the new owners with no disposable income and children who enter our school system bloating it further
